The Eagles and Coach Mark Wilkins are coming off a Tennessee 4-A state runner-up campaign, and return two all-state tournament guards in Jett Montgomery and Tylan Lewis. Montgomery, who has committed to Southern Miss and was named to the all-state team as a junior, averaged 21.5 points a game last year. Lewis, who has received offers from Radford and Morehead State, scored nearly 11 points a game while handing out 5.8 assists. The Eagles also return big man Houston Hicks, who will be a force under the basket.
